Thursday Night Football props from Mr. FC PIT/MIN – 12/9/21

BV is out on a short leave of absence crushing his finals so I’m stepping in this week for the Thursday Night props, let’s give it a whirl!

Kirk Cousins over 32.5 pass attempts -115

Even with reports coming out that Dalvin Cook will be returning to the Vikings lineup tonight, I can’t imagine we see him get anywhere near the workload we’ve seen in the past. Cousins has hit over this number in 3 of his last 4 games (40, 32, 35, 37) and I don’t see that changing tonight. I don’t have a great feel on either of these teams or how exactly the game will go, but I think we’ll see the Vikings try to air it out and outscore the Steelers. If the Steelers are able to jump out to a lead and keep their momentum going, then Minnesota will be playing catch up leading to a lot of pass attempts, especially in the second half.

Najee Harris over 3.5 receptions -130

Harris has put up at least 3 receptions in every game but two this season, is averaging nearly five catches per game, and has also hit this number in 3 of his last 4 games (with the only one being the blowout loss against Cincy where he had 5 targets and 3 receptions). With the corpse of Big Ben back there, the Steelers have made it clear on their intention of using Harris as a passing option as an extension of the running game and making simple throws for their immobile QB, so I’ll pay the juice and take the over here.

Side note: I’ll be throwing Steelers +10 in my Week 14 teaser along with Chiefs -2.5 if that’s something that peaks your interest.
